Won’t Get Fooled Again

Won’t get fooled again – The Who

From the theme song of one of the best television shows to one of the worst. Or an arm of one of the worst. A malignant growth of a cancer of television. I mean, i’ve never actually seen it but… The kind of money that can license a Who song for a show’s opening credits – where that money comes from, the vacuum’s of mediocrity they create – is never going to be behind anything worthwhile.

Won’t Get Fooled Again

Won’t get fooled again – The Who

Believe it or not, i actually like the Who. I mean, i haven’t heard much of the Who past the hits but i like what i hear ok. I think Keith Moon is an incredible drummer who is fun to try imitate to varying degrees of failure, they seem to target, affect and call into being a certain youthfulness and that’s always a good thing, the Freaks and Geeks episode didn’t hurt none, and the walls i would usually put up to such male rock fogeyness have been crumbled under the praise of people i respect, namely one Carrie Brownstein. Maybe we all need at least one dinosaur band in our lives. I like Yes as well.

Love, Reign O’er Me

Love, reign o’er me – The Who

I know this from two places and two places only. The first and less significant is from Quadrophenia. The second and vastly more appreciated and meaningful is from the Who episode of Freaks and Geeks. That show, my all time favourite, is so important to me and one i’ve spent so much time with, immersing myself and my life in it as fully as one can a television show, that the fact i cannot remember where in the episode it plays is killing me. I haven’t watched it in so long. I’m actually a little scared to again.
